Tuition Assistance Program
The St. Michael’s School Board of Trustees is committed to making a St. Michael’s education available and accessible to all students, regardless of economic capability. The school, in its discretion, makes grants to help parents who need assistance in covering the full tuition costs. If you wish to apply for a Grant in Aid please log on to sss.nais.org/parents to complete and submit the application form. The information you provide is used as criteria for determining grants, and the process is confidential. Once you have completed the form, please schedule a time to meet with Mrs. Heise to discuss. You can begin the application for the 2017-18 school year beginning in November 2016.
Tuition covers the school's day-to-day operations, including salaries for faculty and staff. The current tuition level results in a $1,000.00 shortfall per student each year. To attract and retain the best teachers and provide appropriate facilities and tools that enhance and encourage learning, St. Michael's must also look to alternative funding source as a means of addressing the tuition shortfall. Parents are asked to make a tax-deductible gift to the Annual Fund each year. Gifts to St. Michael's Annual Fund support the school's day-to-day operating expenses and help make up the tuition shortfall.
Extended Care Program
The Extended Care Program is provided on school days as a service for the convenience of St. Michael's parents and students, beginning at Preschool through 8th grade. If enough interest, the program is also offered on vacations and school holidays.
Hours of Operation: Morning Care, 7:30AM to 8:00AM; After School Care, 12:00PM to 6:00PM
Cost: $6.00 per hour, which includes snacks. A late fee of $5.00 per minute will be charged for any child not picked up by 6:00PM.
The Capital Fund
Currently the school is paying down a bond-fund for our new buildings and facility upgrades. The goal is to eliminate that debt through private donations, including gifts in-kind and cash. Families are encouraged to participate in any capital campaign.
I witnessed firsthand the ease of transition from Middle school to High School. My daughter was both academically and socially prepared, and I directly attribute this to her St. Michael's experience."
